The ironic thing about the "cancer free" baby is that it was conceived through in vitro fertilization. IVF is now well known to dramatically increase a baby's risk of adulthood cancer in itself. Along with increased risk of genetic defects, severe forms of autism, and a variety of metabolic and cardiovascular disorders. They eliminated two genes which account for a minority of cancer cases and in so doing dramatically increased the risk for all sorts of other morbidities. Lord have mercy.
